Underdog Soccer Pod Top 5 (Round 1)

A quick note on ground rules – we went with Berhalter’s traditional back four line up. We also only allow a player to be listed for one position, so you may not see Dest at RB because we have him listed as a LB already. For CB we did not consider their strong foot or how they paired, but just purely on the best player in the pool in that role.

Here’s the Underdog Soccer Pod:
